Theater shooting victims are suing Cinemark in civil court, claiming that the owner of the Century 16 Theater had a lack of security.

During an interview on Politics Unplugged, attorney Marc Bern told Marshall Zelinger about a warning that theater chains received from the Department of Homeland Security on May 17, 2012.

"There was a warning more than two months before [the Aurora Theater shooting], the Department of Homeland Security sent out a notice, called a 'Roll Call Release,' that said that movie theaters in the United States were targeted by terrorists," said Bern. "Now this shooter was as good as any terrorist, whether it was ISIS or just this individual, who came in to terrorize and kill individuals."


He intends to use that document as evidence in the trial that begins with jury selection on Monday.
